Subject: Good Film
and like many films of this period is was created to help boost moral within the United Kingdom.

It's just a shame that so many films have fallen into the Public Domain. As the original companies which made the films no longer exists.

No one has written a review because the film is hardly worth watching. Talk about corny!!!

I'm surprised no one has written a review yet.

This is a good and funny film. As a bonus, it's has some interesting details in it, e.g. the british armored cars.

The "musical" at the beginning may deter you from watching this film, but you can just fast-forward to skip it.
